Interactive Website Analyzes Children of Immigrants

A new Urban Institute website, Children of Immigrants Data Tool, enables users to generate detailed charts of the characteristics of children age 0 to 17 nationwide and in individual states and the District of Columbia. Statistics on 21 features include citizenship and immigrant status (foreign vs. native-born) of children and their parents; children's race, ethnicity, and school enrollment; parents' education and English proficiency; and family composition, income, and work effort. A companion publication, "Children of Immigrants: National and State Characteristics,"highlights key national data and variations across states. (Author abstract)
